Rangers Win 8-3; Win Series Versus Detroit

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Yu continues to walk too many batters to make everyone comfortable, walking 5 in 6.2 IP.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: The offense was great, again.  And Josh Hamilton went yard and had another multi-hit, multi-RBI game.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: A's and Angels lost today, increasing the Rangers lead to 6.5 and 8 over them respectively in the division.  According to all the TV talking heads after the Greinke trade the Halos were supposed to start gaining on and eventually overtake the Rangers.  So far, not so much.


Rangers/Holland Win 2-1 In Pitching Duel Versus Detroit/Verlander

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Shaky first inning by Doogie Holland, gave up a solo shot in the first inning.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: But, that homer and 2 other hits and 1 BB was all that Holland gave up in 7.2 IP.  Josh continues to hit in August.  Nellie and Olt had the 2 RBI's.  And Olt had the pinch hit game winning hit.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: Oh please let Holland pitch like this down the stretch.

Rangers are up 5.5 and 7 games against the A's and Halos respectively going into today's day game.

Yu is up today, he and Wash had a talk after his last in a string of tough starts.
